The American Cancer Society is looking for volunteers to help in a number of different areas with the Beaverton Relay For Life.
Dedicated volunteers are committed to fighting cancer in their communities year-round, but once a year, they gather at Relay For Life to celebrate survivors and caregivers, remember loved ones lost and to gain inspiration for the fight.
Each of the more than 4,800 Relays nationwide is a fun-filled, overnight event that mobilizes communities to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer. Teams of eight to 15 members gather with tents and sleeping bags with the goal of keeping on person on the track at all times. Relay For LifeŽ brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, churches ... people from all walks of life. Teams seek sponsorship prior to the Relay, all with the goal of eliminating cancer.
Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are needed. Volunteer opportunities include general set-up and tear-down, survivorship activities, luminaria activities, entertainment planning, concessions and on site help during the Relay.
